Hey Jeff plenty of beer just not enough time to drink it :lol: .. lots an lots of work then holiday vacation then decided to have someone do the rigging then he couldn't get to it so I made up my mind to just do it myself, but i'm still working 60 hrs a week so it's going a little slow :dontknow: ..Now that I'm doing it I'm glad I decided to just do-it :thumbleft:

Thank you, hope everythings good with you. Still got alot of work to do on the boat, once everything is
built I got to tear it apart for paint. Then put it all back together for final assembly and wire it up.
I'm not rushing...obviously...LOL..Still got my old boat to ride so that also gets in the way of the build

Yeah bud life is good! I've been on hold for a while with getting down your way but I'm putting another boat together now and it shouldn't be to long. Just waiting on jeff (affliction airboats) to get my engine stand welded up. Other than that, I'm ready to put the boat back together.
